The End is in sight……

August 15, 2013


Today (Friday) is the visit from our Large National Association for Children (not it’s real name) accreditation validator. (Every five years we go through renewal.) Every thing that could possibly be done is done. Or it isn’t. (If it isn’t, there’s not a lot I can do about it now, huh?)

The folders on the table represent tons of work (classroom portfolios) done by myself and my co-workers, and it doesn’t even show the giant file box that has our program portfolio. It all looks so neat and tidy when it’s done, but I really should take a photo of the boxes of overflow I’m hiding here at home.

Prayers for a good visit would be welcome. I’m not really worried about it, though.
‘It is what it is.’ We are a good school, and if we have a goof, well – so be it. The love of Jesus is spoken daily at our school, and that’s what really matters.

What I am most looking forward to is the lack of stress/panic/anger/annoyance/disappointment/frustration that awaits! For years I’ve felt like an axe is hanging over my head for one reason or another, so (until we get our result) I am looking forward to actually teaching.

    The organization of your box and binder and pretty-colored folders ought to be enough to tell the accreditation people that you know your stuff. What a relief to have that done!
